This week’s LIVE WEBSHOW is going to actually be a FREE
CLASS!! I am so excited, this is the first time that I will actually be
teaching a project STEP by STEP live and streaming!!
Would you like to join in?? it’s going to be so much fun!!
I will be teaching you how to make an ENVELOPE keepsake
book- perfect for storing collections of memorabilia, or even just
compartmentalizing memories… I think it’s a perfect thing to put into our birthday celebration, because
I think it’s a good idea to create one of these for each of the people in your
family, or those you love- and celebrate their birthdays… and throughout the
year, simply gather or file away photos, or other memories in the envelopes and
when that birthday rolls around- you simply present it to that friend/child/parent/boss
etc. etc. and there you have a wonderful collection of laughs and a peek
through the last year.
Here is what you need if you would like to be actually
CREATING right along with me in the comfort of your own kitchen counter:
6×9 chipboard or cardboard pieces (have these pre-cut!)
2 12×12 cardstock in a
coordinating color (I used hot pink!)
5-7 6×9 envelopes (could be the yellow ones w/ the clasp, or
15” crepe paper (coordinating or
heidi swapp ‘electric blue’
crop o dile
**hot glue gun… this makes this
project quicker! If you want to try it!
*if you have a silhouette… you can
cut out a 6 ½” CELEBRATE banner word (House of 3 word) and a 6” HAPPY word.
*You can use a cereal box or
cardboard box for the covers.
*You can find the 6×9 clasp
envelopes at the office store- take a jump drive to the office store at the
same time, and get your House of 3 backgrounds and banners printed.
*you can use ANY of the House of 3
backgrounds… or anything you have on hand as well!
Ok, so the plan is that I will be
teaching this as I would any class in real life! Step by step. I am not going
to have this stepped out how I would for like a 5 minute segment on a craft TV
show… I am going to be cutting, gluing and creating in REAL TIME! I’ll be
sharing my tips and you’ll see my process from beginning to end. This will be a
bit of an experiment… so plan on joining us! if you are there, be sure to log
in to Ustream, and you will be eligible for the giveaways.
If you can’t be there at 7pm
Mountain time- (6pm Pacific and 9pm Eastern) then never fear, you can watch at
anytime- the recorded version will be available to watch and re-watch… The chat
is moderated, so if you have questions, we’ll do all we can to answer
questions! It does get a little crazy! find your time… it's WEDNESDAY NIGHT … FEB 24, 2010~
Even if you aren’t planning on creating
the project, join in and get INSPIRED to create! I have loved hearing all the
feedback and receiving emails telling me how much the webshow is jumpstarting
creativity! It’s seriously a blast. Goes by too fast!
